“This course has made me more aware of the connectedness of everything, and has given me a vocabulary with which to discuss sustainability, etc. It has given me a tiny modicum of hope for the future — but also (conversely) a sense of despair when I see how far we have to change. If all our public representatives and decision makers participated in a Community Powerdown course, they might get a clearer picture of what’s needed to make our planet’s future secure.”   Jane Powers, Journalist, Irish Times
